France Doesn't Play
Sometimes I like to blog about some serious shit, espeically with what's going on with this Muslim woman who France has denied citizenship because she wears a burqa. France said that her “radical” practice of Islam is incompatible with basic French values such as equality of the sexes. Ain't that some shit?
And check this out:
The woman, known as Faiza M, is 32, married to a French national and lives east of Paris. She has lived in France since 2000, speaks good French and has three children born in France. Social services reports said she lived in “total submission” to her husband. Her application for French nationality was rejected in 2005 on the grounds of “insufficient assimilation” into France. She appealed, invoking the French constitutional right to religious freedom and saying that she had never sought to challenge the fundamental values of France. But last month the Council of State, France’s highest administrative body, upheld the ruling.(Religion News Blog)
I can see where the French would be upset. They have laws where both sexes are suppoed to be equal and clearly, her role as a traditonal Muslim woman doesn't uphold to the French standards.
Too bad. I say if she wants to live in France, then it's time to become liberated. If she doesn't like it then she can move back to where being a submissive is not frowned upon.
I can just imagine how the Muslim culture must make our U.S. feminist blood boil. Speaking from my Native cultural background, our system is based on the Matriarchal method which basically means the women are the boss. If any of you have never heard a Native woman speak, you're missing out some of the world's best articulate, heart felt, passionate, voices you've ever heard in your life.
